US Marines on the Ramparts of Freedom

This is the finished recruiting commercial from the US Marines. Outstanding and admirable in every way.

You might recall that San Francisco refused to cooperate in the making of this film: Marines Denied Permission To Film Commercial 11/29/07

Film Commission Executive Director Stefanie Coyote would only allow the Marine's production crew to film on California Street if there were no Marines in the picture. They wound up filming the empty street and will have to superimpose the Marines later.
I would say that it was that city's loss and shame, but that city has no shame and is already a total loss. Except when it comes to creating and distributing spanking new STDs. [ S.F. General researchers follow strain of drug-resistant bacteria] There the city by the bay really shines.

At least they got the GG Bridge shot in at the end.

I work for the city of San Francisco. Most of us were embarassed to tears by the idiocy of our city government when they turned the Marines down. Thankfully, the place where they filmed the GG Bridge shot is federal land, and thus didn't need a SF city permit. So there.

I lived in SF for 23 years. I finally had to move to the burbs because I simply couldn't take living there anymore. It's like living in the United States again.

You do have to realize that there are people living in SF that hate the leftist twits who currently run the place, but they are always outvoted.

I saw that commercial tonight on TV and was moved to tears. It is that wonderful. Thank you for being such a patriot as to show it here.

San Francisco may want the Marines back in the not-so-distant future: According to a columnist in the Chronicle, "City's violence begins to rattle residents." Link: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/01/20/BAKLUHV95.DTL

Those are the best of the best.

Was that in-house? If not, I want to know a) who did it, and b) who at Quantico got it cleared because he/she ROCKS.

That's breathtaking. Great stuff.

And when the big one hits San Francisco, I know the city will tell the Marines, "No Thanks."

Thank a veteran every day, if you can.

Why even bother to put the bridge in the commercial? It looks like the spot was to show something to the effect of the Marines watching over us across the country. Why couldn't they have picked another West coast location that actually would embrace them, instead of a place that might lead the charge to rename us the 'Untied States that only care about ourselves'?
